Redding Competition Shell Holders ?????

Okay try not to laugh too much . I need some one to break it down for me into redneck/hillbilly terminology . The very best my rifle ever shot was with once fired brass that I had bumped the sholder back 2 thousandths. My question is this . Now I use the redding type S full length sizing die , can I just leave the die set like it already is and install the .002 redding shell holder and run it up into the die ? Will that give me only .002 sholder bump and have me ready to load ?

Thanks for any help and or advice....

No. Those shell holders are thicker, not thinner so your shoulders would tend to move forward by two thou.

The reqired amount to move a die (or shell holder) for any given shoulder change isn't all that simple anyway - it's not hard or complicated but it's not that simple either

How much is your current die setup bumping the shoulder?

How is your die currently adjusted?

How are you measuring shoulder bump? There are several products to do this; I use a Redding Instant Indicator for each caliber.

Keep your present die set to full length size. Get a set of Skip Otto's die shims from Sinclair. With the right shim you can bump shoulders where you want without re-adjusting the die.
